what does it mean "Update 7/10/2017" ? I know americans are weirdos with the date formats (month/date) but this one is damn hard to decipher :))

GPU market is pretty lame and expensive atm imo. I'm sitting on 7950+ (clocks almost like 7970) which I got ~2years ago for 120eur used (I guess it was after some bitcoin/mining bubble or something) which replaced my aging 4870. Now if I would want to get similar boost I need to get something between 1060-1070 but even lame 1060 3GB goes 200e used , which is almost twice the amount I paid 2 years ago for bigger boost :(

I don't know what will be better, if Vega is really that good and pushes prices down on whole spectrum or another mining bubble burst which will flood market with GPUs...

Was this paid for by Nvidia? It doesn't really seem like any work went into this one. You weren't even specific on which version of X,Y or Z card is the best bang for the buck. Everyone knows the 1080ti is the card to get if you have $700. Which of the 1080 ti cards is the best bang for the buck though? C'mon, put some effort in next time.

I think that when the price of the Rx580-8GB dips down below $280 again, it should be back on this list. The temporary price spike due to cryptocurrency mining is a real bummer. When the Rx570 price goes down to ~$200 again, it's the best price/performance card on the market, 10% less performance than an Rx580 for 20% less money.

What happened, it's as if people quit making video cards, where did they all go? Is there something I don't know about some disaster or something? Where are all the cards?

What's up with the jump from $130 to $269 for the next best? There's nothing in between? What if my budget is about $180 or $220?

I think you are missing out by not recommend the Rx570. It's the best TFLOPs/$ card on the planet, only about 10% slower than an Rx580 but priced up to 20% less.

Your Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB links to Corsair Air Series AF120 LED Red Quiet Edition High Airflow 120mm Fan. You might want to check on that since we're not here looking for fans.
